This evening I tried to plug my laptop into my TV through a HDMI cable, which has always worked in the past, but for some reason it now only shows a very thin strip of the top of the TV display. I have automatic settings so when I plug the HDMI cable into my laptop it automatically switches to the TV only display; I can't switch to dualview or other multiple monitor settings.
My laptop info:
* Processor - Intel Core 2 Duo T7350 2 GHz Dual-Core
* RAM - 4 GB (installed) 4 GB (max) - DDR2 SDRAM
* Hard Drive - 320 GB
* Operating System - Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium
* Screen - 16 in 1366 x 768
* Graphics - NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT - 512 MB
The TV is a 52" Sony Bravia, and I'm using a standard HDMI-HDMI cable for connection.
I know the problem is not the TV, as I am watching it now and it is fine. Also the problem isn't the HDMI cable as I tested running my PS3 on the same TV with the same cable and it worked perfectly. It was all working fine last week, this problem only started today.
So I need some help to resolve this issue please! I need to know how to reset the settings so that when I plug the HDMI cable in, the display doesn't automatically switch to TV only. Also I need some help as to how I can fix the TV display so that it shows the full display once again, rather than the thin strip at the top.
I apologise in advance if I have not provided sufficient information for troubleshooting; ask me if you would like to know anything else.
Thanks very much!
